Do I need another FFP3 mask fitted?

Mask fit testing is now held in DENTAL SUITE, NR OUTPATIENTS, GBH

FFP3 masks are your last line of defence against aerosolised particles when performing aerosol generating procedures. Stocks of masks fluctuate.

It is vital that staff have access to a wide range of mask types to ensure there is always one there for you when you need it most.
